You know my sewing machines are packed – wow I have more free time!    🙂  Thought these quotes were appropriate for now.  Put them in my book when I first moved to Alaska.

“The only life worth living is the adventurous life.  Of such a life, the dominant characteristic is that it is unafraid.  It is unafraid of what other people think….it does not adapt either its pace or its objectives to the pace and objectives of its neighbors.  It thinks its own thoughts, reads its own books, it develops its own hopes, and itis governed by its own conscience.  The herd may graze where it pleases or stampede where it pleases, but he who lives the adventurous life will remain unafraid when he finds himself alone.”
Raymond B Fosdick

“It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure to embrace the new.  But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.  There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.”  Alan Cohen

“Money, although it helps, doesn’t make real dreams come true; only faith, hope, and compassion can do that, and patience; but the voyager can’t be too patient or time will erode his dream.” 
Tristan Jones in The Improbable Journey
